The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Sustainability@Wayne seminar on Tuesday, April 03, 2018 from 2:30 p.m to 3:30 p.m. in 1507 Engineering Bldg. (EDC Auditorium). The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested.

The Sustainability@Wayne Seminar speaker will be Mario Eden, Ph.D., Department Chair and Professor, Chemical Engineering Department, Auburn University. He will present "Computer Aided Methods/Tools for  Sustainable Multi-Scale Chemical Process and Product Design." 

Dr. Mario Eden is the Department Chair and Joe T. & Billie Carole McMillan Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Auburn University. Dr. Eden received his M.Sc. (1999) and Ph.D. (2003) degrees from the Technical University of Denmark, both in Chemical Engineering. His main areas of expertise include process design, integration and optimization, as well as molecular synthesis and product design. His group focuses on the development of systematic methodologies for process and product synthesis, design, integration, and optimization. 


Process and product design problems by nature are open ended and may yield many solutions that are attractive and near optimal. It is incumbent upon the process systems engineering community to help bridge the gap between fundamental science and engineering applications as new research areas continue to emerge. This presentation will highlight several novel methods/tools for sustainable chemical process/product design, specifically: 1) Group contribution based synthesis of process flowsheets; 2) Chemical product simulator software for mixture/blend design; and 3) Modeling the dispersability of polydisperse nanoparticles in gas-expanded liquids. 

A short reception will immediately follow the seminar.
